Best destination for nice beach and excursions

We (two adutls with an 11-year-old) are planning a trip to Mexico either for the end of March or end of June.

We are looking for a destination in Mexico with a nice beach and fun excursions. Horseback-riding and wildlife/animals are two big interests. We do not mind if wildlife means visiting an animal park as long as you get really close to the animals (we have done the dolphin encounters so we are not looking for that) but visitng a junglearea would also be nice. Snorkeling would be great and possibly other wateractivities, maybe river tubing or something like that.

Tips on other activities/excursions in Mexico would be appreciated. By the way, kids activities are NOT important as this is quality family time and our daughter will be joining us in everything.

We prefer a destination on the East Coast of Mexico as we live in New York.

Recommendations on a nice hotel (ideally reasonable priced) with great surroundings (again, some wildlife would be great!). Either all-inclusive or not (we maybe would want to mix it up).

You'll surely enjoy these things if you visit the Riviera Maya, anywhere from Puerto Morelos to Tulum. Try to check out the area to narrow down which city/town you want to stay. Then post a thread under that particular city forum if you need more assistance/feedbacks.

Yes for sure the Riveria Maya area.There are alot of great places to stay there most are all inclusive.The Grand Pallidum Kantenah was wonderful it had lots of wildlife right on the resort.It is close to Xel-Ha for great snorkling,and Xclaret for a wildlife park.There are lots of tours to go on down there.Check out Apple vacations or Funjet or even Jetblue out of NY.Hope this helps any questions feel free to ask we have been going for the past 5 years.

Thanks for your suggestions. I checked it out and thought Tulum sounded very intersting. Rivera Maya I have heard about and that could be an option as well. Wildlife on the resort is great although this time we are a bit curious about not doing the all-inclusive.
